music monday…kinda.

February 1, 2011 — Leave a comment

Listen, I know this is Tuesday, but in the spirit of trying to create some consistency I am getting this out now. Also, I’ve decided to label this post “music mondays” instead of “new music mondays” because sometimes “new” can be a relative term. I plan on showcasing music that is inspiring me ¬†at the time be it hot off the presses or a timeless classic.

That being said, onto today’s feature.

For those familiar with the Christian hip-hop world, the mention of Lecrae typically garners “download NOW” status. His recent release “Rehab: The Overdose” is no exception. The track that has had me going all week is “Battle Song” featuring Suzy Rock. It’s starts off by sampling none other than Freddie Mercury from Queen of all people, so you know it’s gonna kick tail. Once the beats drops it stirs something up on the inside that is true to its title. Lecrae’s lyrical delivery is on point as usual and Suzy Rock’s verse is vicious.

Whether you are looking for a song to get you ready to take on your daily spiritual battles, “hour of power” on the elliptical (also a spiritual battle), or give your week a throat chop and crotch kick, “Battle Song” is your track.
